Images of Rail: Metropolitan New York's Third Avenue Railway System Book
by Charles L. Ballard
Metropolitan New York’s Third Avenue Railway System features never-before-published photographs documenting the final years of this streetcar system, from 1940 to 1957. Chartered as the Third Avenue Railroad Company in 1853, the system provided streetcar service on Third Avenue from Ann Street to 61st Street. The line eventually extended north to Harlem and across 125th Street and, in its heyday, north of Manhattan into the Bronx and northern Westchester County. Individual lines as well as some of the car barns, work cars and car-scrapping yard employed by the system are featured in this book.
